On Saturday evening at the Brava Theatre, the members of Slipnutz reunited for the first time since their appearances on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” The trio of Andy Blitz, Jon Glaser and Brian Stack were immediately up to their old antics, slipping on nuts…and falling down. Andy Richter joined the Slipnutz, before heading to Cobb’s for Team Coco Live. Steve Agee (“The Sarah Silverman Program”) hopped on stage, stated his preference for not performing with nuts underfoot, and swept a clean circumference around himself for his appearance. The Slipnutz were also joined onstage by Maria Thayer (“Eagleheart”) who shared a song about slipping on nuts. Comedians Jackie Kashian and Ron Funches, who had each graced multiple SF Sketchfest events with their wit this weekend, rounded out the show. The whole evening kept the die-hard Slipnutz fans in the audience (and on stage) cracking up.
On Friday, January 31, Stella & Friends returned to the SF Sketchfest stage. David Wain and the Michaels reminisced, hosting guests performances by Steve Agee, Dan St. Germain, Todd Glass, Janine Brito, Brendon Walsh and Andy Kindler.
SF Sketchfest returned to the California Academy of Sciences to host Comedy Nightlife Thursday. Comedians filled the various venues and treated revelers to all brands of comedy. You’re the Expert kicked off the night, followed by Roderick on the Line, in the African Hall, which weighed in on the cultural transformation happening in San Francisco. Dork Forest with Jackie Kashian taped a live episode with guests Ron Funches, Todd Glass and SF Sketchfest’s own Janet Varney. Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction kicked off it’s first of three shows with SF Sketchfest to a packed house in the Forum, with a science fiction edition too filthy to quote. Stand up comedians packed the piazza and as always, Claude, stole the show.

# of SF Sketchfests you’ve worked: This is my first!
Why: Alison Brie: The only way I can endorse the resurrection of Hall and Oates songs is when it’s being done by these adorable & talented ladies. Also, ”Bored to Death” because of that silver fox, Ted Danson, and Singin’ and Pingin’ because it’s a karaoke dance party…need I say more??
Favorite SF Sketchfest memory: Last year’s Princess concert
